#3 is in DMOZ!!! More later....

Later is now. 9:49 PM.

I found out that #3 made it into DMOZ when I checked my stats and had received 2 visitors from the directory. The page I am on is a PR5 with a bunch of other links of course. I think the real benefit of being in DMOZ is the fact that your site shows up in other directories automatically. There are a multitude of smaller directories that take their results directly from DMOZ. Getting in there means you get into these smaller directories as well. I guess the word "stoked" would apply in this case=)

I did write a home theater article today but after 11.5 hours at work today, I was not in the mood to actually type it up and post. Plus the DMOZ thing got me excited and I started doing directory submissions for #3 in earnest. The way things are going, #3 will probably be the strongest of the three sites from the link exchanges I have been able to get. I haven't even submitted articles for it yet. The author is working on those now.

Speaking of directory submissions, I may create my own directory resource guide. One with directories I know to be worthwhile so that I have a quick and easy resource for submissions each time I create a new site.

  • Good job! This will definately help, at least it has on past sites I have submitted.

    Did you submit the site yourself or did they find it on their own?

  • Thanks, Burke. I submitted it on the 25th. With the sites that you got into DMOZ, did they have affiliate links on them or no?

  • Cool, that is really quick. I have two sites currently in DMOZ. One I submitted and the other that just got picked up for some reason. They are both pure ecommerce sites, no affiliate links.

    Did you have adsense or affiliate links are your site when they reviewed it?

  • Good work Jon! DMOZ is huge for the reason you mentioned. All that link juice.

  • That's the thing. The home theater site was looked at by DMOZ only 3 or 4 days after I submitted but it wasn't included. #3 had about the same results except I have not put up the affiliate links yet. I specifically left them off the 2 new sites to see if it made a difference. Apparently it does.

  • "Link juice"=) I like that.

    There were Adsense ads on #3 though so that didn't seem to deter them. I haven't had a sale on the home theater site since it went up. I can just see myself taking all of the affiliate links off the site and resubmitting if I were to get REALLY bored one day.

  • Congratulations! Very interesting... I might just take the affiliate links off mine and submit them 'cause I can't get any of my AM sites in there.
